Event Details

The leather industry is the second largest export sector of Bangladesh exporting around $1.2 billion worth of leather and leather goods annually. In the global leather market of around $210 billion, our market share is less than 1%.

As, China, the global market leader of leather export, shifting its focus from the leather industry for increasing labor costs, Bangladesh has an immense potential for growth, exports, and employment. With the increasing per capita income in the past decade, the domestic market is also expanding. This new reality offers an incredible opportunity for entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs build consequential companies in the leather sector. This event has been designed to facilitate that goal.

  • You will learn about interesting trends in the industry and opportunities for starting new ventures
  • You will learn how to start and build successful enterprises in the leather industry from award-winning entrepreneurs
  • The session will feature a keynote presentation and a panel discussion with industry leaders and experts.
